  Information - AS1.05 Variability and predictability of the coupled stratosphere-troposphere system (co-listed in CL)

Event Information
Our understanding of the relationship between the extra-tropical stratosphere and troposphere has been radically changed in recent years. It is now widely accepted that the stratosphere is not a passive absorber of tropospheric planetary wave activity, but has an active role in influencing the tropospheric climate system.

We seek submissions which investigate all aspects of coupling between the stratosphere and troposphere on all timescales between extended range forecasting and climate variability and climate change. In particular, this year we are particularly interested in papers which focus on the use of stratospheric information to improve seasonal forecasts in the troposphere. We are also interested in papers which propose and test dynamical explanations for observed coupling between the stratosphere and troposphere and those which discuss the impact of stratospheric climate changes on the troposphere.
